Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2012 August

Today, I wanted to share my project for Tim's August Tag.  Instead of an ATC card I found the perfect frame in my stash that totally inspired me after seeing Tim's tag and after watching his tutorial on making rolled roses from his Pinecone die, and using 'Coordenations' paper.  Well let's just say, I had to sit down and make some of my own!

Here's Tim's gorgeous tag.


and here's my project.

and a closeup - to show you these gorgeous flowers!




  To finish up, I sprayed a new shimmer spray on the Roses, and added a dove and a corner piece of Doilee.  My silhouette is a chipboard piece from Maya Roads. I heat embossed it with Ranger Black embossing powder, before adhering it against the background.
